#### Solution

Let the basic price be x

Rebate = 20 % of x

Rebated cost of game boy= x - 20 % of x

= "x" - (20 "x")/100

= (80  "x")/100

Sales tax= 15% of cost of game boy

= 15/100 xx (80 "x")/100

= (12 x)/100

Total cost = cost + sales tax

= (80 "x")/100 + (12 "x")/100

= (92 "x")/100

But total cost = Rs 4,784

⇒ (92 "x")/100 = Rs 4784

⇒ x = (4784 xx 100)/92

⇒ x = Rs 5,200

Hence, Basic price of game boy =Rs 5,200
